an independant member of
It's OK, we're alone, so raise
your hand if the idea of inter-
viewing is intimidating or fright-
ening. Guess what? It's natural
to feel intimidated about the
unknown. That's how most peo-
The great news is that interviewing
is a situation where not only can you
overcome your fear, but you can
strategically position yourself as the
one to win the job. You see, you have
to recognise interviewing for what
the most prepared applicant will win.
In fact, it s rarely the most qualified
candidate who receives the job offer;
instead it s the one the interviewer
liked the best, who demonstrated
they would fit into the organizational
So where does this leave you and
your interviewing anxiety?
Who Would You Hire?
Picture your choices: If you had
to choose between a totally qualified
yet arrogant and unkempt person
and a seemingly smart, vibrant, and
communicative person, who would
you be most likely to choose?
Except in situations like brain sur-
gery, if you appear trainable, fit in,
and can meet the company / cus-
tomer needs, then you are a better
choice than the person who can do
the job but will not be liked by staff
What does that mean to you? If
it is a game, then there are strategies
to winning the game. If you master
the strategies, then you can win,
regardless of your age, education
level or other self-perceived barri-
The Power to Succeed on a
Uneven Playing Field
The best way to visualize this is
as an uneven playing field. This is
the only competitive sport where
you will never get to see your com-
petition perform. Therefore, you do
not know what you are up against.
Aim for "Better Than Average"
and Personal Best
My personal approach in the inter-
view process is to recognise the
power of striving to be better than
average. Or, be better than you were
the last time you had a job interview
-- improve your process, make
progress in your personal develop-
ment and approach.
If you can give that little bit extra,
you can be good -- which is held in
high esteem, But if you can give your
all, you can be excellent and reach
any goal you set for yourself. This is
very good news for you -- like every-
thing you have ever set your mind
to, you can learn to sell yourself con-
fidently in the interview!
The Attitude to Succeed
So, besides studying, what else
does it take to succeed in the inter-
view? A positive attitude!
It is easy when you are in a tran-
sition such as graduating from
school, changing careers or seeking
employment to become discouraged,
self-deprecating, or negative. In fact,
many of us are not even aware of
the negative self-talk or attitudes we
You see, attitude is so important
to your success not just in your next
job, but in your life. Whether you
see a glass as half full or half empty
will determine how each situation
that befalls you will affect the next
step you take. Many people have had
terrible situations happen to them
and have made that situation into
the best thing that ever happened
Why You Cannot Lose
But, a positive attitude cannot
banish fear, can it? Our palms still
get sweaty and we still fear we ll
clam up and not know what to say.
But, are you really the one who
has something to fear? Surprisingly,
no!Sure, you can argue that you have
a lot to lose -- a job offer, for exam-
However, you cannot lose some-
thing you did not have to begin with.
View every job interview as more
"practice for the big game."
Use that positive attitude I talked
about to overcome the little things
that crop up in an interview. Strive
to present the best version of you
that you can and enter this interview
process with an open mind.
The outcome of a less than perfect
interview situation will really be
determined by the way you allow
yourself to see the situation. Where
one person may trip and fall and
then become so embarrassed that
they start to cry and have to leave,
another will laugh it off and make
the employer laugh too, establishing
The truth is, whenever you
interview, YOU HAVE NOTH-
ING TO LOSE.
You can t lose time, because you
gain practice in each case about what
doesn t work, how to prepare better,
what kinds of questions are asked,
and much more.
Or you gain knowledge of who you
don t want to work for (that rude
Or you perceive this and what you
thought was disinterest was really
something personal and not you at
all.The worst enemy you can have is
your negative beliefs creeping in to
tell you that you are doing something
wrong and bad.
The interview is just a game that
you will strive to win. If you don t
win, you don t also lose, but you
learn what not to do the next time!
You cannot lose something you did not have
to begin with. View every job interview as
more PRACTICE FOR THE BIG GAME.
